The effect of relaxin on the oxytocin receptor in human uterine smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

EXPERIMENTAL OBJECTIVES Activation of the oxytocin receptor (OTR) induces phospholipase C induced PIP(2) turnover in the human uterus. Relaxin (RLX), a polypeptide hormone produced in the corpus luteum of pregnancy as well as in the placenta and decidua inhibits PIP(2) turnover and subsequent signaling in human myometrium. The purpose of this study was to… (More)
